The Incomprehensible Weebland of Castelia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The High Council of Castelia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 4.862 billion Castelians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Castelia City. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Castelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,319 trillion mordons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 271,333 mordons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,109,095 per year while the poor average 43,947, a ratio of 25.2 to 1.

Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, the nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime is totally unknown. Castelia's national animal is the renard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Way of the Weeaboo.

Castelia is ranked 2,579th in the world and 10th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Cultured, scoring 202 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
